    Item still in start menu after uninstall

    Well I uninstalled a few programs and most of them have no traces left... one however is still listed under the letter sorted part of the start menu.
    No clue how to remove it as it's not installed and none of the files from it are left...

    Edit: You know those blonde moments?
    those ones where you effectively walked into a glass door covered in wet paint by pure force of stupidity?
    Yeah that was me... forgot the start menu folder was a thing because of how all over the place the design for 10 is

    Problem solved by going to the folder and tappin delete.

    Why is there no right click delete start menu icon option in 10 btw?
